Review: Blame it on the Rodeo by Amanda Renee

 

Most Certainly Contains Spoilers

Review:

My Harlequin-o-rama continues with Blame it on the Rodeo.  I borrowed this because Lexi is a vet, and there’s a horse on the cover.  I had no expectations going into it, and truthfully, I didn’t even read the entire synopsis.  Sometimes that bites me in the rear, but this time I was pleasantly surprised, and I could not put this book down.  I loved it!

Review: At the Count’s Bidding by Caitlin Crews

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I am having a love-hate relationship with Crews’ books.  I love the raw emotion of her writing, but gosh darn!  Her heroes can be such douche bags!  Since At the Count’s Bidding features the revenge trope, I was expecting Giancarlo to not be the nicest guy at first, but I had a hard time wrapping my head around how awful he could be.  It was hard for me to accept him as heroic or romantic, and I wondered what Paige saw in him.  I started to think that the only reason she was allowing him to treat her like that was because of all of that guilt she carried.  For what?  For something she did ten years ago, when she was just barely out of her teens.

Manga Review: Personal Relations by Mayu Takayama and Heather MacAllister

 

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I was more than annoyed when I learned that Scribd was drastically cutting back on their romance catalog.  I signed up for an annual subscription shortly after they acquired 15,000 backlist Harlequins.  Harlequins are my crack, so I’ve been dismayed that my favorite authors will no longer be available there, after they took my money and still haven’t emailed their customer base about their actions.  So, I decided to spend most of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday reading manga on the website.  I haven’t been a power user until this weekend.  I was more than content to know that that huge library of Harlequins was there, waiting for me when I had time for them.  Now, I am going to be a power reading, and get my money’s worth from the subscription.  I figure I have about 4 months of minimal reading to make up for.
